Product Description

About the Author

Master crime fiction writer John Creasey's near 600 titles have sold more than 80 million copies in over 25 languages under both his own name and ten other pseudonyms. His style varied with each identity and led to him being regarded as a literary phenomena. Amongst the many series written were 'Gideon of Scotland Yard', 'The Toff', 'The Baron', 'Dr. Palfrey' and 'Inspector West', as JJ Marric, Michael Halliday, Patrick Dawlish and others. During his lifetime Creasey enjoyed an ever increasing reputation both in the UK and overseas, especially the USA. This was further enhanced by constant revision of his works in order to assure the best possible be presented to his readers and also by many awards, not least of which was being honoured twice by the Mystery Writers of America, latterly as Grand Master. He also found time to found the Crime Writers Association and become heavily involved in British politics - standing for Parliament and founding a movement based on finding the best professionals in each sphere to run things. 'He leads a field in which Agatha Christie is also a runner.' - Sunday Times. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

A book to read and re-read. It moves at a cracking pace, and has multiple story-lines which ensure that the book does not flag. Packed with insights into London in the post-war years.

Complex mystery 11 Jun 2004
By Sarah Sammis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Marric isn't kind to his characters but lets the plot unwrap with a complexity and randomness close to real life. I don't think I've ever read a mystery with as many threads. All of them are centered around the Thames and all of them are eventually solved though some more successfully than others. Reading Gideon's River is like reading an entire series of mysteries in one go or watching an entire season of a cop show.
